Abstract: A hernia usually presents as a painful lump in the groin, often associated with a large strain but it may also be asymptomatic and coincidentally discovered on routine examination. The incidence of hernia increases with age but a large number affected are working men and they can be severely disabled by the condition. Inguinal hernia is a common condition and 763 hernia operations were carried out in Government hospitals in Malta and Gozo during 1997.
